Growing up, Hal and I were neighbors and fellow boy scouts. He was fun to be with, along with all the other scouts in our troop.

I lost track of Hal when I went on a mission, but later learned that he did a tour in Viet Nam.

My understanding is that he returned home from there, married and was trying to get on with life, but had some serious issues.

Things didn't work out well for him, and in 1974 he died as a result of depression and a failed marriage.

His father called me up one day, and told me of his death. I was shocked. Then, he asked me if I would come to his funeral and be the speaker. I did. It was very difficult, but I was honored that his family felt comfortable asking me as one of his many friends, to assist them in their hour of need.

I'll remember Hal as that fun-loving scout, and hope he's found peace in a better place.
